7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. clarissa ward is here. >> good morning. what a stunning cameo. >> more about that later. we begin with president obama in a cbs interview. he said russia must take steps now to reduce tensions over ukraine. >> the president just wrapped up four days of meetings with european allies. he is now on his way to visit the king of saudi arabia another key u.s. partner. before leaving rome, the president talked to "cbs evening news" anchor and managing editor scott pelley who joins us from vatican city. scott, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, clarissa, charlie, great to be with you. a beautiful day in rome. we just spoke to the president at the u.s. embassy a short time ago. russian troops, as you know, are building on the russian side of the border with ukraine. there is concern that vladimir putin has not finished with his land grab of ukraine, has not
7:04 am
finished with crimea. we asked the president about that this morning. he urged putin to pull back from his own border to lower the tensions in the region. and here's a little part of that interview that we just did. before this interview, you would have received your intelligence briefing. what worries you on the ukrainian border? >> this is not something just in my briefing. i think it's well known and well acknowledged that you've seen a range of troops massing along that border under the guise of military exercises, but these are not what russia would normally be doing. and, you know, it may simply be an effort to intimidate ukraine, or it may be that they've got additional plans. and in either case what we need right now to resolve and de-escalate the situation would
7:05 am
be to -- for russia to move back those troops and to begin negotiations directly with the ukrainian government, as well as the international community. >> reporter: what is vladimir putin after? >> well, if you take him at his word -- >> reporter: can you? >> well, on this, i think he's been willing to show a deeply held grievance about what he considers to be the loss of the soviet union. you would have thought that after a couple of decades that there'd be an awareness on the part of any russian leader that the path forward is not to revert back to the kinds of practices that you know, were so prevalent during the cold war. but, in fact to move forward would further integration with the world economy and to be a
7:06 am
responsible international citizen. you know, he said that he considers the breakup of the soviet union to be tragic. i think there's a strong sense of russian nationalism and a sense that somehow the west has taken advantage of russia in the past, and that he wants to in some fashion you know, reverse that or make up for that. what i have repeatedly said is that he may be entirely misreading the west. he's certainly misreading american foreign policy. we have no interest in encircling russia, and we have no interest in ukraine beyond letting the ukrainian people make their own decisions about their own lives. and it is true that we reject the notion that there is a sphere of influence along the
7:07 am
russian border that then justifies russia invading other countries. certainly they're going to have influence because of trade and tradition and language and heritage with ukraine. everybody acknowledges that. but there's a difference between that and sending in troops and because you're bigger and stronger, taking a piece of the country. that is not how international law and international norms are observed in 21st century. >> scott, what did the president say about nato's response so far? >> reporter: well, you know, we asked the president, charlie, about nato and asked him whether it was really a hollowed out force at this point. 85% of u.s. forces have been removed from europe since 1989. we used to have 400,000 troops there. now we have about 50,000 troops there. the president made the point that it is up to all of the nato allies to contribute -- germany,
7:08 am
britain, the rest of them -- to contribute to the forces there in order to have a credible force as a counterweight against vladimir putin's russia. >> scott, did the president say what the u.s. will do if vladimir putin pushes further into eastern ukraine? >> reporter: well, he wouldn't be specific clarissa but he did say that there would be more economic sanctions brought to bear, not just by the united states but by the world community. yesterday, there was a vote at the united nations and 100 countries to 11 voted in favor of a resolution that condemned the invasion of crimea. so the president really feels he has the backing of most of the world, and he hopes that these economic sanctions will be enough to deter putin. >> scott, thank you so much. in our next half hour, the president talks about meeting pope francis, and more of scott's interview will air tonight on the "cbs evening news with scott pelley." the search for malaysia airlines flight 370 is taking a
7:09 am
giant shift towards australia. this morning, five different aircraft spotted objects in the new search area some of the same debris was seen at least twice. officials say an analysis provides, quote, a credible new lead toward the final location of the boeing 777. holly williams is in perth, australia, the home base for the massive search operation. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. nearly three weeks after malaysian airlines flight 370 disappeared, there's been another confusing development. ten search planes took off here today after the authorities moved the search area because of new analysis of the radar data by boeing. the new search zone is 700 miles northeast of the original area. it's 120,000 square miles, which is roughly the size of new mexico. a new zealand crew spotted something there today. we still have no confirmation as to whether it's debris from the plane. now, australian officials explained the sudden change in
7:10 am
search area at a news conference earlier today. >> this continuing analysis indicates the plane was traveling faster than was previously estimated resulting in increased fuel usage and reducing the possible distance it travelled south into the indian ocean. >> reporter: now the good news is that the new search area is further north. so it will be less affected by the strong winds and heavy rains that have slowed down the teams combing the southern indian ocean for wreckage. but this is frustrating for the crews who have already spent a week scouring a search area that investigators now think is hundreds of miles from where the boeing 777 went down and they still have no recovered a single piece of wreckage from the jetliner. back to you. >> thanks holly. the search for mudslide victims in oso, washington is now in its seventh day. 90 people are still missing. many survivors are only starting to feel the disaster's full impact. one local official said last night this is going to get
7:11 am
harder and harder. john blackstone is just outside oso where authorities are warning of more bad news to come. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the official death toll here is 17, but as daylight arrives here in the west this morning, we're awaiting an announcement raising that number significantly. as many as nine bodies located over the past few days are being cleared by the medical examiner and added to the list. in this huge tragedy, the smallest loss seems particularly painful. searchers late thursday found the body of 4-month-old sinoa hustice. the first week of digging is coming to an end but for searchers, there is no end in sight. >> trees, mud, dirt, residences cars some of them look like they've been put in a blender and dropped on the ground. >> reporter: that's exactly the way it felt to 81-year-old mac mcpherson. >> you just kept mixing it, mixing it and when it got going fast enough took the top off,
7:12 am
and it went oh. >> reporter: linda was sitting beside him when the avalanche of mud hit. he grabbed a wooden stick to dig himself out but could not find linda. >> she was gone. >> it's very overwhelming, and it's almost surreal. but you see the pictures and then it starts hitting home. >> reporter: but the strength of this community is hitting home, as well. oso's determination is reflected in a new phrase here, "oso strong." many of the searchers are local loggers who know the missing. as much as it is their mission to find bodies, each discovery is somber. >> it gets really quiet for a few minutes. you can almost hear a pin drop out there. you see seasoned veterans in this business, they start to tear up, their eyes get glossy. and it's kind of their way of paying respects to these people's loved ones.
7:13 am
>> reporter: officials here have warned the number of confirmed fatalities will rise substantially when those updated numbers are released a little later this morning. clarissa? >> john, thank you. the searchers in oso are facing more wet weather. meteorologist megan glaros of cbs station wbbm says much of the u.s. will see rain this weekend. >> good morning, and good morning to those of you in the west. if you are in the pacific northwest this morning rains will continue for you through the course of the day today. into tomorrow and likely into sunday, as well. for san francisco and parts of central california the rain chance ramps up going into your saturday even the potential for some isolated thunderstorm activity for you. and there will as well be mountain snows. los angeles topping out at 72 degrees today. las vegas at 76. phoenix, probably around 81 degrees. but seattle and portland staying steady in the mid-50s as will boise. and what we see for the east is a little more interesting in terms of the possibility of strong to severe storms.
7:14 am
anywhere from san antonio, texas, all the way through to the panhandle of florida. there is the possibility today of strong to severe thunderstorm activity. very spring-like there, with damaging winds, large hail, and the possibility of isolated tornadoes, as well. certainly something to keep an eye on. back to you. here's a look at the severe weather that already hit missouri hard. a passing system brought hail, heavy rain, and at least one tornado yesterday. several homes were damaged. signups for the affordable care act are surging ahead of monday's deadline. the white house says more than 6 million americans enrolled in private insurance plans under the health law. that falls short of the original goal of 7 million, but exceeds recently revised estimates. the obama administration will allow people to buy coverage after the deadline if they've already started the process. there's word this morning one of the most influential lawmakers on national security matters is leaving congress.

7:16 am
an environment that prompted aides to order the closure. >> spent a lot of time the last 11 weeks thinking about what did i do if anything to contribute to this? and i don't believe that i did. but i'm certainly disappointed in myself that i wasn't able to pick up these traits in these people. i'm disappointed in myself that i didn't look closer that i didn't -- that i trusted too much. >> critics called the report a one-sided whitewash that cost taxpayers $1 million. police in afghan's capital say four suicide bombers attacked a guesthouse this morning used by foreigners. at least three americans may still be inside 20 more people were evacuated. this happened in an upscale area of the west side of kabul. the taliban is taking credit. a police spokesman said one attacker set off a car bomb outside the building that led to a gun fight inside. there's no word yet on casualties.

a a tampa woman was driving and took this video of a man tailgating her. he stayed on her tail for about three miles. she was boxed in by a truck and refused to go faster on wet roads. he finally passed her, flashing the we're number one sign and then some might consider justice, the tailgater lost control and crashed along the median. she yelled at him, "that's what you get." he wasn't hurt, but later picked up by the police. how is she driving and shooting him? and then he spins out. not a good situation on the road. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour the magazine that didn't check the full story behind this photo. it is causing outrage among readers this morning.

we'll see why tutu is nothing to laugh at. plus changing america's pastime. how major league baseball is taking a swing at expanded instant replay. and if you've ever wondered what charlie does away from work i know you have we'll show you why he's having a ball. that's ahead. more now of "cbs this morning" news's interview with scott pelley with the president. scott is with us once again from vatican city. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. the president acknowledged he has differences with pope francis, particularly over things like contraception and same-sex marriage. but he said that he spent most of their almost one-hour meeting talking about things that they had in common. in particular, income disparity and the pope's message of helping to lift the poor all around the world. here's a little bit of the interview we did a short time ago at the u.s. embassy. can you give me a sense of what
7:32 am
it's like to be in the presence of pope francis? >> well, you know, he's a wonderful man. obviously, you get a very brief impression. we had a conversation of 45 minutes, although i've admired him from afar since -- since he became pope. i think he projects the kind of humility and kindness that is consistent with my understanding, at least, of jesus' teachings. he seems to have a good sense of humor. i think that his simplicity and his belief in the power of the
7:33 am
spiritual over the material reflects himself in everything that he says and does. and i suspect -- my sense is that he's a little bit uncomfortable with all the trappings of being pope. >> reporter: embarrassed by them? >> well, you know, that's not his style. and that is part of why i think he has been so embraced around the world, because people get a sense that first and foremost he seems himself as a priest and as a disciple of christ and as somebody who is concerned with, you know, the least of these. you know, nothing's more powerful than someone who seems to live out their convictions.
7:34 am
>> reporter: you know, the president mentioned those trappings. it's well known here in rome that sometimes the pope slips those trappings, even gets in a car and drives himself to another part of the city to help minister to the poor. when i asked the president about that and the fact that the president of the united states can't do the same thing the president said that he was sure that the pope had a lot more freedom, but that he the president, had only two and a half years to go and he was sure that the pope would be at this much, much longer. charlie? >> thank you so much, scott. a very interesting photo here, one of many on newspapers around the world showing a nice moment between the president and the pope. more of the interview tonight on the "cbs evening news with scott pelley." >> "self" magazine is facing major backlash after publishing this photo. the women, you see, are running in a marathon wearing tutus. the magazine mocks them saying lame.

epidemic has struck and it's because people think the fru-fru skirts make run faster. if you say it makes people run away from you faster maybe we would believe it. >> if they thought this was a silly trend that they didn't understand, they should ask us. >> reporter: in fact, allen makes the tutus for her company which donates a portion of the proceeds to a nonprofit called girls on the run. >> it helps teach them healthy lifestyle lessons, how to be confident, be healthy, deal with bullying. >> reporter: word of the magazine's missteps spread quickly online with thousands expressing support for allen. "shame on "self" magazine," one person tweeted. many threatened to cancel subscriptions. they apologized saying obviously we messed up. you are an inspiration, and i am truly sorry for this. allen says she hopes something positive will come out of all of this. >> wear a tutu, have fun and just don't take yourself so seriously.
7:37 am
>> reporter: "self" magazine posted mea culpas on their website, but did not respond to us. the magazine has donated to allen's charity and offered to cover her work in a future issue. >> yikes. >> yeah i'm sure they feel awful about it, because clearly somebody didn't get to the whole story. >> you have to be careful when you're doing these catty things that are partly funny but mean-spirited. you have to be aware of who you're making fun of and what the backstory is. >> big ole lesson learned there. thank you, vinita. last night, "the colbert report" introduced a new play date plaza for the show's youngest fans, and guess who popped up on set? >> "good morning america" unveiled their own brand-new youth zone. >> welcome to social square! >> i was so inspired by their example, that i've created my own branded

7:45 am
future, major league baseball is spending $50 million. >> even though i know the outcome -- >> reporter: hall of famer joe torre was on the committee that designed the new replay system. is the underlying purpose really to avoid the big, historic bad call? >> yeah. there's no question. we want to eliminate those ones that you shake your head at or as managers go home as i did, on a number of nights saying, i wish i had a chance to change one thing. >> reporter: or that haunt the umpires even through their careers sometimes? >> no question. >> reporter: now if major league managers don't agree with an umpire's call, they can challenge it. an instant replay from any game in the country is reviewed by umpires in this high-tech facility in new york city. if the call is overturned, the manager gets one more challenge for the duration of the game. if the call stands, the manager's out of luck. bo porter manages the houston astros. >> i think it's good for baseball.
